There is plenty of dust in the air.

Got up along with Lekha's alarm and went about our chores. It was a leisurely grooming and we were in time for breakfast that consisted of a bowl of oats and half a boiled banana.

Lekha and the maid had gone to the market to get a few things done like:-

  (a) Pull out money from the bank.
  (b) Get the handles of the pressure cooker and the pans replaced.
  (c) Pay the water bill.
  (d) Drop the cheque at the ICICI bank's drop box.
  (e) Buy grocery from the super market.

They'd returned by about a half past 11. Work went on as usual. Ramesh got our new toy - a wet waste dispensing contraption @ Rs.2,2000/- - I believe, under the auspices of the Municipality! It's neat, simple to use and compact without other difficulties. Listened to his briefing about the way the mechanism works.

Lunch was simple and nice. Over the past few days, there has been a lot of dust in the air. It becomes palpable when one were to walk barefoot within the house. It's the mud kicked up by the tractor that was deployed a couple of days to plough the dry land in front of our house.


The Assembly elections are over. The exit polls give the Congress Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chattisgarh, the TRS Telangana and Mizoram to the MNF. The counting is on the 11th.
